For the first time ever, we gave 13 Youth Ambassadors full rein of our symphony orchestra, with the opportunity to curate, programme and promote the first evening concert of the orchestra’s 2020 centenary year. This culminated in a wonderful performance last night which was well received by audience members! Have a look through some of last night's highlights, and find out more about the programming choices, as well as further listening recommendations from our team of young ambassadors.
